Fighting umpteen wars around the world, the US special forces (SOCOM) is forever offering “urgent operational needs statements” for its various weapons. This newest one is a real eye-opener, as SOCOM is seeking 325 more Lethal Miniature Aerial Missile Systems (LMAMS).

This suggests that SOCOM has either already burned through 350 assassination drones in a disturbingly short time, or they plan on assassinating so many people in the near future that they don’t think what they have left is enough to cover it until they could order more through conventional channels. Either is a concerning sign, as the US has a questionable history of selecting targets for drone killings.

As we taxpayers know, industrial scale killing doesn’t come cheap.  Only the best will do. Money – No object!

Be seeing you
